Top Welterweights Alves, Kampmann Square Off March 3

Thiago Alves

Alves, Kampmann look to get back into title contention

Thiago Alves and Martin Kampmann are slated for a welterweight bout on an unannounced March 3 UFC event.

HeavyMMA.com confirmed the story with sources close to the fight. MMAWeekly.com first reported the bout.

“It was the fight I asked for, and I know UFC fans will love it,” Alves told Tatame’s Guilherme Cruz. ”He has just defeated Rick Story, who had beat me before, so it’s a good fight for me.”

Alves is coming off a UFC 139 submission win over Papy Abedi. He’s lost three of his last five bouts, but all have been to top welterweights like Georges St-Pierre and Jon Fitch.

Kampmann defeated Rick Story last weekend at UFC 139 via split decision. The win snapped a two-fight losing streak to Jake Shields and Diego Sanchez.
